About Mini WELL IOL
MINI Well design is of a foldable preloaded Intraocular Lens (IOL) used, to replace the human crystalline after cataract surgery, for an innovative treatment of presbyopia disease in adult patients. MINI Well is an acronym for Wavefront Engineered Leading Lens and evokes the wellness of vision providing to the implanted patient.
MINI Well has a wavefront engineered design applying recent discoveries in optical science and by changing pupil optical properties getting an efficient progressive visual performance.
As a preloaded lens, MINI Well is ready to be folded and injected in the eye during a mini invasive cataract Surgery.
MINI Well for a simple and safe presbyopia correction changes the pupil optical properties getting an efficient progressive visual performance. MINI Well is commercially available in Europe and has received a CE Approval (Number of Approval Cerficate: n° G1 12 11 77201 004) by the approving body: TUV SUD PRODUCT SERVICE GMBH
Mini WELL IOL provides a progressive, extended depth of- focus (EDOF) experience for patients – not just a few sharp foci.
How does the SIFI Mini WELL work to give progressive depth of focus?
By having two concentric central zones with spherical aberrations of opposite sign, and an external monofocal zone.
The key concept is that it doesn’t use the diffractive principle of having different foci. Instead, the lens optics has zones of different asphericity with a refractive central zone that translates to around 2.5 D in near, with optically efficient transition zones, to give a good quality of vision across all distances .
